Background: Comorbid physical and mental health problems pose risks for individuals and generate significant costs for services.

Methods: This study is a systematic review of simulation-based education (SBE) for comorbid health problems.

Results: Nine included studies indicate that SBE can develop nurses’ knowledge and skills for the care of comorbid health problems. Methodological challenges limit the quality and generalizability of the findings.

Conclusions: Nurse educators can use the evidence in this review to guide development of educational practices. Further research is needed with larger samples and validated tools to assess the impact of SBE on patient outcomes and the extent to which learning can be sustained in practice.
